    Default new build, which hardware, want to go i5 cpu.. mb recommendations?q

    I ran a hackintosh about 3 years ago, would like to build a new pc to do this again, what are some easily supported motherboards to use with an i5 cpu? preferably atx, not micro. Also what is the fastest nvidia video card that is fully supported with a build like this.


    thanks all

    You can go for an i5, and I think you would benefir from a 2500K if you dualboot with Windows 7, as in my opinion, would have a better support for overclocking. As for the motherboard, there is generally the most support for Gigabyte motherboards, so I'd reccomend going with a P67 based motherboard, or an H67 chipset motherboard if you are not planning on overclocking (H67 Chipsets cannot overclock). As for your video card, it appears that AMD VGA cards have better support, since Macs use AMD Radeon/Ati cards. I'd go for a 6770 or a 6850.

    thanks for the info, I appreciate it.

    so I would have complete support going with..

    Intel 2400 or 2500k cpu

    ASUS P8P67 LE (REV 3.0)
    Newegg.com - ASUS P8P67 LE (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard

    XFX HD-685X-ZNDC Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit
    Newegg.com - XFX HD-685X-ZNDC Radeon HD 6850 1GB 256-bit DDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card with Eyefinity

    thanks again

    I would try to see if others on the forums agree with the build.
